HUDSON, Wis.—Pink is at the center of controversy between the city of Hudson and local business BB Makeup Cosmetics Bar. BB stands out on Third Street in downtown Hudson, and that's just the way owner Brooke Fleetwood wants it. She chose the paint for the building to match her brand — pink. "It's my look, it's my brand. I feel like I own this place so I should be able to do the look of my business," Fleetwood said.
RIVER FALLS, Wis. — With a disinfecting swipe and a quick two seconds to implant, Sam Bengtson had access to his computer, cell phone, credit card and more — all in the palm of his left hand. Then he put his other hand on the table, jokingly ready to do it all again. Bengtson, the lead developer of a microchip project at Three Square Market, had no reservations about joining about 50 other employees in volunteering to have a RFID chip implanted. "I can understand how it can be scary," Bengtson said. "But it is very simple and very secure."
